1. Virtual reality (VR)
If you’re the sort who frets about your accommodation not being true-to-photo, more hotels are now using VR to take potential guests on simulated hotel tours so you know exactly what you’re getting when you book.
2. Google Maps
Those who’ve struggled with pronouncing the names of places and addresses in foreign countries will be relieved to know Google Maps now has a text-to-speech service that’ll verbalise your destination in the local language.
3. Grab and Booking.com
Booking.com users travelling through Southeast Asia can now access Grab services and manage their trips through a single app (Booking.com), from booking transport and accommodation to cashless payments using the GrabPay digital wallet feature.
